5 things to do in Fargo, ND

Fargo, North Dakota is a hidden gem. It’s not a small village hidden in the middle of nowhere, but a booming city with plenty to do! Our travelers have had a great time in the area. We asked a few of them what their favorite parts of the city were and they shared five different places they would recommend for the next traveler headed north!

Here are some of the top things our travelers have said you can’t miss during your visit

1. Red River Zoo: The Red River Zoo is a great place to spend a day off. The zoo is home to a large number of exotic animals, so grab your camera! They specialize in the care and breeding of some of the rarest cold-climate animals. They host a number of fun events throughout the year and you can even do some behind-the-scenes experiences.

2. Hjemkomst Center: Have you ever seen a Viking ship? Well, now is your chance. The Hjemkomst center is a museum that first opened in 1985 and serves as a home to the Hjemkomst Viking Ship, Hopperstad Stave Church replica, quarterly museum exhibits, and county archives. It’s a unique historical experience that you rarely get to see or hear about!

3. Thunder Road: Because who doesn’t love a family-focused play center offering seasonal go-karts, bumper cars, batting, mini-golf & laser tag. Grab some new friends from your facility and get to know each other outside the unit!
